The Basic income it is a measure that continues to fuel controversy: there are those who defend it with the sword, like the exponents of 5 star movementand those who attack it head-on like Matteo Renzi, who hopes for its abolition as soon as possible.
He also talked about the Citizenship Income Susanna Camussoresponsible for Gender policies of the CGILwho gave a long interview to Fanpage.
Camusso in defense of citizenship income: “It is not the cause of the lack of seasonal workers”
The finger has been pointed against the Citizenship Income especially by those who struggle to find seasonal workers, but Camusso, who in the past also criticized the measure, replies as follows: “Citizenship Income is not the cause of the lack of seasonal workers. Unfortunately we don’t realize – goes on – which is a tool born as a fight against poverty. Sure it can be done better than it is now set up, but that’s not the point ”.
The defense of Camusso then becomes an attack, in particular against those who harshly criticize the Citizenship Income: “Attacking the citizenship income, on the one hand, is uncivilized towards people who are in difficulty and on the other hand, it is wrong, because reducing inequalities is the first step to have a better development of the country.
I find it unbearable that boys, girls, young people and all those who do not have a job and are looking for it, rather than having it as an exercisable right in a condition of normal rights and protections, should instead be satisfied with a poor job, which does not allow to live in dignity “.
According to Camusso, therefore, it is not the fault of the young people if they are unable to leave their parents’ house, since they do not have a salary sufficient to pay even the rent.
